Student and Parent Perspectives on Mental Health Well-Being Activities in the Minnetonka School District
This report represents the completion of the “Evaluation of Student and Family Well-being in the Minnetonka School District” consultation provided to the Minnetonka district in May of 2020. In order to have a clear understanding of the experiences of students and their families in regard to well-being, I recommended in-depth interviews that explored their experiences with District mental health supports and that sought feedback regarding future District activities and interventions.
I recommended interviews of elementary, middle, and high school students, and separate interviews of parents with children at these levels. The goal of the interviews was to assist the District in having an in-depth understanding of the opportunities and challenges that students and their families experienced regarding mental health and well-being.
Interviewees included parents of elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as students who were in elementary, middle, and high school. A total of 19 interviewees provided feedback. All interviewees were encouraged to identify issues that impacted student mental health.
